I picked up a bottle of EC 18 (for $21!) yesterday, and the label notes that it was bottled in September of 81. My question: does EC not sell a lot of this product? I just don't understand the lag time. 18 years is a long time to sit on product. I would imagine that they'd want to put it out immediately. And yet, this bottle has been sitting somewhere for another six or seven years. Why?
BTW--Though I'm no expert, EC 12 is one of my favorites, and a great value. And I liked my first taste of this very much. A little more scotch-like in accent, but still with that dark, semi-sweet, smooth and flavorful character I associate with EC 12.
